My family went here for dinner on a Satuday night...my husband wanted some crab legs. We arrived around 7:30 on a Saturday night...we were able to get seated fairly quickly and snagged a picnic table outside. The table itself was covered with brown paper for picking crabs. The seat portion of the table was gross...was incredibly sticky...just felt plain gross.... More

This was our 1st time visiting this place, and we were so happy that we made the choice in coming here. All week long, we've been wanting some crabs. We ordered the large all you can eat buffet. It came with corn, chicken & fries. I know from now on where to go if wanting crabs.

We returned to Higgins looking for some good seafood. We were not in the mood for all you can eat so we ordered off the menu. The food took almost an hour to get to us. It was just warm not hot. The soft shell crab was almost inedible. The stuffed shrimp consisted of only 5 shrimp and was $25.99.... More

Awesome steamed crabs, came during a special. Crabs and corn for $28.00. The crabs were perfectly seasoned and the corn sweet and hot. We had excellent service from Deena! Thank you Higgins for a wonderful meal!

Came with my partner on our first visit to OC. Like the decor and the friendly staff. Not fine dining but overall it met our expectations

My sister and I stopped in for a light supper the weekend after Memorial Day. We weren't in the mood for eating crabs...just something lighter. There are plenty of choices other than the "All You Can Eat" menu. The Maryland Crab Soup I had was delicious and the burger tasted of high quality beef. My sister's crab cake was good....of... More

So this little area of Ocean City, where Higgins North is located, is sort of the dead zone in Ocean City. We were staying on 120th street and it was harder than we thought it would be to find good places to eat within walking distance. A little further North or South would have been much more ideal, but hey!... More

Went to Higgins over the weekend because the Crab Bag was too full. We had seen good reviews for the other Higgins Crab House but did not notice how mixed the reviews were for here. The atmosphere was depressing at best, nearly empty. The staff was very dull and boring (did not seem happy to be there or to be... More

We went to Higgins at this location after being unable to get crabs by the dozen at the Crab Bag. It was our last night before going home the next day 8/31 and we wanted crabs. We asked for a sample of ribs and chicken and they were both terrible. Chicken was dry and both chicken and ribs had no... More
